Lush Twilight Shower Gel Review

Okay guys, I’m super excited to finally be writing this review! This is such a hyped-up product, and in my opinion that is for very good reason. Last year I was lucky enough to be gifted a £100 Lush gift card for Christmas, and so I bought this shower gel last year in the Boxing Day sale at the Oxford Street store. I’ve only just completely used it up (I’ve been trying to get through so many different body washes at the same time!) So it lasted me just under a year!

I hope you enjoy this review 🙂

Twilight Shower Gel (100g) :

twilight_web

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

The scent of this shower gel genuinely relaxes me and makes me feel kinda sleepy – which can be a problem if you want to use it in the daytime! This definitely isn’t a pick-me-up or wake-up sort of shower gel.

The lavender scent in the shower gel is pretty strong, so if you’re not a fan of lavender I would really steer clear of this one altogether.

The scent is REALLY STRONG. I know a lot of people prefer mildly scented shower gels – this shower gel does NOT have a mild scent at all.

I don’t know that I ever particularly noticed the shower gel’s scent clinging to my skin very much after using it.


Pros:

I love this shower gel. It’s relaxing, calming, soothing… The scent is like receiving a big hug before bed. I recommend at least giving it a go because wow, I really liked this one!

The colour of Twilight shower gel is beautiful. It is a deep purple colour.

Twilight lathers up beautifully. I’d only need to apply the smallest drop of shower gel to my shower pouf, and it would often be enough to wash my entire body with (and I’m super thorough!) Sometimes I would have to add another small dot of shower gel onto my shower pouf once I had reached my waist, but there would always be lather left behind on the shower pouf when I had done cleaning myself.

Using Twilight will leave your bathroom smelling absolutely gorgeous all day and all night, and pretty much for as long as Twilight is the last cleansing product you used in the bathroom!

There is a real sweetness to the shower gel’s scent, making it not quite so in-your-face of a lavender scent as it would be otherwise. If you imagine mixing the scent of a freshly baked cake with the scent of lavender, that’s the way Twilight smells to me. Like a lavender cake.

The name of this shower gel… Ugh! It’s just so beautiful, mysterious, sleepy, calming and comforting.

When I was a kid, I was very into integrating the night sky into my bedtime. I had a teddy who wore a night hat and pyjammas, completely covered in glow-in-the-dark moons and stars. I also had dark blue bed sheets with dark yellow, bohemian style moons and stars all over them. My mother has always been a huge fan of lavender, and would get me to rub my fingers on lavender plants to smell them when I was a kid. Twilight shower gel brings back those precious, nostalgic, comforting childhood memories for me, through its name, its colour and through its beautiful scent.

Twilight shower gel works very well. It always left me feeling super clean, smooth and slightly moisturised after using it.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I am utterly baffled as to why this isn’t available year-round, as Lush would make a massive profit by doing so! I do know that some people hate Twilight, but I’m fairly certain that the vast majority of people feel the same way as me – this shower gel is incredible.

The scent is an absolute dream. It’s feminine, delicate, complex, sweet, rich, has just the right amount of headiness to it, is nostalgic, relaxing… The scent IS very strong, but that’s something I don’t mind much, and definitely isn’t enough to prevent me from wanting to use more of this shower gel in the future.

This is like, quite possibly my favourite body cleansing product that I have used from Lush to date… Okay, I also REALLY enjoyed Rose Jam – I’m not sure which of the two I enjoyed more at the moment!

Anyways, I don’t know what else to say about Twilight Shower Gel. It’s pretty obvious that I’m absolutely in love with it!

Overall, I’m going to rate this shower gel a 5/5* rating. I just think it’s such an amazing product – it’s only genuine faults are that it makes me feel sleepy when I inhale it (and sometimes I don’t want to feel sleepy) and that the scent doesn’t cling to my skin more after using it.  It’s such an incredibly product that it still gets a clear 5* rating from me! I mean, who doesn’t want to use a shower gel that makes them feel like they’re receiving a nice hug? 😀

Lush Twilight Bath Bomb Review

Twilight Bath Bomb:

me.JPG

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

This is quite a feminine bath bomb, in the sense that it leaves the bath water a light purple colour. The bath water left behind by the bath bomb is also filled with lustre, and the colour of the bath bomb itself is a light, pinky purple colour, with an adorable design of a cartoony moon and cartoony stars on it. The scent of the bath bomb is lavender, with a sweet and buttery toffee note to it. Some men and women may not feel uncomfortable bathing with a bath bomb with aspects that are typically perceived as being feminine, so this may not be for everyone!

To me, every product with the Twilight scent that I have smelled so far smell differently from one another. The bath bomb when in it’s solid form does smell typically like the Twilight scent – it smells like both the shower gel and like the Mr Sandman Dusting Powder. However, once in the water, the lavender scent becomes much more prominent than the sweet, toffee scent, which becomes slightly more buttery smelling and much more subdued. If you’re not actually keen on naturey scents and mainly like the Twilight scent for it’s sweetness, perhaps you wouldn’t like the bath bomb!

I had this bath bomb in my collection for around 25 days before using it. In this time, the bath bomb had already become much more soft and powdery. This resulted in the bath bomb sinking in my bath tub, leaving little bath art on the surface of the water. This wasn’t a big deal, and I still really enjoyed what bath art the bath bomb did provide! This bath bomb doesn’t seem to last well in storage though, so if you want to give it a try, try not to hoard it!

The bath water left behind by the bath bomb was a very translucent, pale purple colour – sort of like a much more pale and translucent version of the colour of the bath water that the Blackberry Bath Bomb provides. I honestly expected the bath water to be left more opaque and saturated than it was – this doesn’t leave your bath water super colourful!


Pros:

IMG_6700.jpg

This bath bomb is adorable! It is the cutest little bath bomb I think I’ve ever seen! The design is just absolutely adorable, and is also really comforting and reminds me of the design I had on some of my bed sheets when I was a child. The colour is super cute, the bath water the bath bomb leaves behind is super cute, the concept of the bath bomb is super cute, the scent is super cute… Just everything about this bath bomb makes me really happy! I also received this as a gift from my partner, and I can tell you that this would be an amazing bath bomb to gift someone you care about!

My favourite colour is dark magenta, and I love purpley hues in general. I think the colour of the bath water that Twilight Bath Bomb leaves behind is really pretty, even if I do wish it was more opaque! I also really enjoy the lustre left behind in the bath water 🙂

I think the scent of this product is absolutely amazing! The scent of lavender is quickly becoming a favourite of mine, and with the added hints of sweetness in this product, Twilight Bath Bomb smells very close to perfection to me at the moment! If you enjoy sweet foody scents and also enjoy the scent of lavender, I’d give this product a try!

The bath water left behind by this bath bomb was SUPER moisturising! I was really surprised, because it wasn’t something I expected at all. Twilight Bath Bomb makes for an excellent, nourishing bathing experience 🙂


Overall Conclusion:

IMG_6702.jpg

Overall, I REALLY enjoyed this product! I had such high expectations for this bath bomb as I absolutely adore the Twilight scent and concept, so it was really exciting to finally get to try it out yesterday. I love how adorable and comforting it is, I love the scent of it, I love how nourishing it is, I love how it looks… Sure, it isn’t absolute perfection, but it is really, really close!

Overall, I’m going to rate Twilight Bath Bomb a 5/5* rating. Perhaps it wasn’t a perfect product but it was close enough for me to rate it a 5 star rating 🙂 I HIGHLY recommend giving this product a try and to gift it to your loved ones – any hype around it is for GOOD REASON!


Thank you for reading my review!

Lush Golden Wonder Bath Bomb Review

I was lucky enough to be given a £100 Lush gift card for Christmas from my partner so of course, I spent it on the Boxing Day sale! I wasn’t super organised though and failed to picture everything and upload a “What I got for Christmas” blog post, but I am going to be making a post on my current Lush stash very soon.

At the Lush store we went to on Boxing Day, all the Golden Wonder Bath Bombs were sold out. Luckily I brought my partner along with me, because while I was grabbing the individual bath bombs, he went and grabbed me the Golden Wonder gift set which of course, includes the Golden Wonder Bath Bomb! I was so chuffed 🙂

I wish I were more organised – I’ve gotten such lovely things over Christmas and also did over my Birthday, and I would have loved to have blogged about them!

Anyway, here is my review of the Golden Wonder Bath Bomb 🙂 I hope you enjoy!

(I’m sorry in advanced for the terrible quality of the photos I have uploaded. My laptop has gone for repair so the only way I could edit photos and transfer the edited copies onto wordpress was through messenger, which really has killed the quality!)


Golden Wonder Bath Bomb

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This is a Christmas Exclusive item so, if you happen to absolutely love it, you’re going to have a tough time getting your hands on it during the rest of the year!

The scent… Okay, I get that it shares its scent with Celebrate Lotion etc, but honestly? It was just such a weak scent, and didn’t linger for me at all. If you are expecting a strong scent from this one then you are going to be very disappointed.

It is SO glittery! Anytime I held this bath bomb before using it, my finger tips would be absolutely coated in golden lustre. It was a bit of a pain!

Okay so this is a weird con but hey, maybe I’m a bit of a weird girl. The colour bothered me. Not because of the colour itself, but to me the bath water genuinely looked like a sea or ocean, and that sort of terrified me. I’m really scared of sharks, so sitting in a bath of water that makes me feel as though I’m in the middle of a tropical sea or ocean somewhere was sort of unsettling. It was especially creepy because I was the only one awake at the time and it was in the early hours of the morning (maybe around 3am…) Maybe if you have a similar sort of fear, you should steer away from Golden Wonder!

This bath bomb was very residue-y. I wish I had rinsed off in the shower after taking a bath with this bath bomb but honestly, my fear of sharks just sort of caused me to shoot out the bathroom ASAP! I was really freaked out! Anyway, the gold stars that are released by this bath bomb were sort of buttery, and also left residue around the bath tub. Basically, some additional rinsing of both the bath and yourself will be required after bathing with Golden Wonder.

The rattle or whatever the surprise is meant to be in the center…? I didn’t hear anything at all when I shook the bath bomb around.


Pros:

I think this bath bomb looks absolutely gorgeous! It is a beautiful yellow-golden package with a lovely cream coloured big bow on the top. It is also really big! It definitely looks very special for a bath bomb.

This bath bomb fizzed away quite nicely. It was a fast-medium fizzer.

Almost straight after the bath bomb began fizzing away, the only part of the bath bomb that was visible above the water was the cream coloured bow, which I thought was adorable! It looked really cute just seeing a cream bow travelling around the bath as it fizzed away.

The colours of this bath bomb are lovely. Beautiful golden yellows, creams, blues, pinks… Super pretty!

This bath bomb made the bath water genuinely look like a tropical sea/ocean somewhere. If that sounds like your kinda thing, absolutely go for it!

The scent was nice and fresh.

The golden stars released were really cute!

I found this bath to be somewhat moisturising.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I didn’t like this bath bomb all that much… The colour of the water sort of scared me, the bath bomb left behind residue, the scent was very weak… It’s a real shame, because I think that the bath bomb looked so beautiful before putting it in the bath, and I really think this is one that has a lot of potential. Perhaps I just shouldn’t have used it in the middle of night to prevent my mind from wondering too much.

Overall, I’m going to rate this bath bomb a 4/5* BECAUSE my partner found it for me in the store and it was a gift from him, and I definitely think it is overall a really nice bath bomb! I think I just used it at a rubbish time of the day to be honest, otherwise I’m sure I would have had a better experience with it. Although, the scent was definitely somewhat of a let down!

Lush Intergalactic Bath Bomb Review

img_2452-2

Intergalactic Bath Bomb

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

The glitter from this bath bomb won’t go straight down the plug hole once you have drained the bath water, so the bath needs to be rinsed after using it.

The scent isn’t very strong.

I don’t know if this is the same for all Intergalactic bath bombs, but mine was very soft – holding it would leave tons of power on on my fingers and little indents in the bath bomb. It is very delicate!

Because of the peppermint, the water sort of feels colder than it actually is. This meant me having to add a lot more hot water to my bath once I got in, until the bath was very full!

After bathing with this bath bomb, I did have to rinse myself off in the shower quickly afterwards to get any leftover residue out of my hair and off my skin.

This bath bomb didn’t do that much for my skin in terms of moisturising.


Pros:

The peppermint in this bath bomb makes your skin feel extra clean.

THIS BATH BOMB WILL MAKE YOUR BATH THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING IN THE WORLD WOW! The glitter… the colours… just… wow…

IMG_2454 (2).JPG

The scent is lovely! It is a sweet, musky peppermint, and is really refreshing. I’m sure it would be brilliant to use when you have a cold, to help with feeling congested.

My mother got me this as part of my birthday present, and wow, what an incredible gift! I would highly recommend giving this to someone as a gift.

The glitter stays on your skin a little bit after you get out the bath.

The display that this bath bomb gives… At first, the bath bomb realeased a cloud of inky blue colourant, that slowly spreads through the entire bath. The bath bomb then begins to release glitter and a beautiful rainbow of colours, all whilst spinning elegantly. Absolutely beautiful!

IMG_2466 (2).JPG

The fizzing time of this bath bomb was medium – long enough to really enjoy the show, but fast enough to not become too impatient or bored whilst watching. Ideal!

The name, the theme… Who doesn’t love Astronomy?

IMG_2475 (2).JPG

BEAUTIFUL!!!

AMAZING!!!

VEGAN, FROM LUSH, CRUELTY FREE, ETHICALLY SOURCED INGREDIENTS… HANDMADE…

My hair felt really soft after washing my hair in this bath!


Overall Conclusion:

IMG_2472 (2).JPG

Wow. Just wow. I did not expect to love this bath bomb as much as I did. It was just such an incredible experience, using this bath bomb.

I have to rate this bath bomb a 5/5*, without a doubt. The only negative thing about this bath bomb really was having to add in extra hot water to the bath, but I’m sure in the future I could just learn how much hot water this minty bath bomb requires.

Overall, I absolutely loved it!
